Oology, which treats of eggs — naturally enough 
comprehending the study of the habits of birds during 
that most interesting period, the breeding season — 
with the peculiar and often singularly beautiful homes 
the feathered artisans construct, in situations widely 
various, in which to deposit their eggs; the form and 
coloration of these products of the oviduct, which, in 
their wonderful variety, form an endless chain of in- 
terest to the naturalist; and, indeed, a study which 
embraces a love of all things wild and free, of the mar- 
vels of nature which are miracles new every day — 
with a study so vast and so absorbing is it a wonder 
that out of this most delightful branch of Ornithology 
the true enthusiast is born? 

Oology claims its votaries among students and col- 
lector-students (who get their facts first hand) the 
world over — men like the late Major Chas. E. Ben- 
dire, John C. Cahoon and others of America; Wooley, 
of England, and many more who might be mentioned 
here, have risked their lives (some to lose them in 
daring cliff descents) and endured hardships in many 
lands in pursuit of scientific knowledge and in the 
acquisition of rarities in nests and eggs. The jour- 
nals of some of these men (as Wooley 's) are human 
documents which will be read with admiration by all 
true naturalists for perhaps centuries to come. 

An Oologist is not to be made to order for the occa- 
sion, even to satisfy the demands of a publisher! Once 
an Oologist and the delights of the pursuit are never 
to be forgotten. The late Judge J. N. Clark (rest his 
memory!) was as enthusiastic as a boy up to the close, 
at past three score and ten of his honorable career. It 
is not a child's hobby, but a serious study and one 
which brings its compensations for the hardest day's 
tramp, the "fiercest" climb, to the true collector. It 
requires much research to be intelligently followed, 
for sets of eggs taken indiscriminately, without proper 
data, with careless preparation or without being ab- 
solute positive as to identity, are valueless — or worse. 

I saw a friend of mine (a true Oologist) not long 
ago take up a set from his collection labeled "Curlew 
Sandpiper." "Maybe they are, and maybe they are 
not," he said, and suiting his action to the words he 
crumpled the egg shells into fragments and tossed 
them into the coal scuttle. It was a fitting receptacle 
for eggs of dubious authenticity, especially so when 
thev were assumed to be of such rarity. 

Where absolute authenticity means so much, if the 
better class of collectors would unite in discouraging 
reckless handling and sale of eggs, where such is ap- 
parent, and encourage scrupulous honesty in dealings, 
in every way which suggests itself, much good might 
result. So long as ignorant handling of specimens and 
carelesness are tolerated individuals who do not hesi- 
tate at long guesses will thrive and even attain to a 
certain reputation! Is it not better to have fewer sets 
and have them from strictly reliable sources than 
many that are "probably" the real thing or are de- 
clared to be "just as good"? 

How many sets of White Gyrfalcon have been of- 
fered which (either through ignorance or intention) 
are of the whitewashed "White"? When eggs of 
alleged Falco islandus are offered with others from 
apparent Icelandic collections a grave doubt may- 
arise as to their authenticity. 

The similarity in scientific names adopted for dif- 
ferent species or varieties by American and Eupopean 
ornithologists is no doubt responsible (at the hands of 
indifferent collectors) for some pernicious confusion as 
regards Gyrfalcons on our list, as it is in cases of other 
species. The White Gyrfalcon, which we call Falco 
islandus, breeds in Northern Greenland, but not in 
Iceland. British ornithologists call our White Gyr- 
falcon Falco candicans, while our Gray Gyrfalcon 
{Falco rusticolus), the only form found breeding in 
Iceland, they designate on their lists as the Iceland 
Falcon, Falco islandicus, or even sometimes F. is- 
landus (!), giving rise to natural confusion as to the 
White Gryfalcon and Gray Gyrfalcon. 

It will be seen that a hasty conclusion on the part 
of an Oologist either exporting or importing these 
eggs would be easily responsible for errors not appre- 
ciated by the consignor and, unhappily, often not by 
the average consignee. 

Sets of White Gyrfalcon, as I am informed by Mr. 
■ A. W. Johnson, a well known British Oologist, at 
present making his home in California, are very diffi- 
cult to obtain, and may be rated, he believes, as al- 
most equal in value with those of the Black Gyrfalcon 
(F. rusticolus obsoletus). Any sets of any Gyrfalcon, 
it may be stated, are "good" eggs to obtain. 


Some grievous blunders have been perpetrated in 
sending out sets of the Swans, the confusion of Ameri- 
can and European scientific names, with synonynms, 
being held responsible. Our Whooping Swan, Olor 
cygnus, which breeds in Iceland, has been confused by 
some handlers of eggs with Cygnus olor (the same 
thing hind-p art-be-foremost ) although the latter is 
the common "Mute" Swan, domesticated and breed- 
ing on Scotland lakes, and elsewhere. Our Whooping 
Swan is known in Europe as Cygnus musicus. A 
blunder which is bad, though not so egregious, has 
been made in sending out Whistling Swan from Ice- 
land, where the species does not breed. Confusion in 
scientific names is the excuse offered. 

Eggs of Old World forms similar to ours have been 
exchanged as the same thing or "just as good," being 
labeled as European. Some times they are and some 
times they are not. We have a European price on 
Richardson's Owl, meaning Nyctale tengmalmi. It is 
nearly the same thing, but I submit that it would be 
more in line with strictly honest policy to call it Teng- 
malm's Owl, with the explanation. In the chapter on 
Richardson's Owl in Bendire's Life Histories (page 349) 
we read: 

"The eggs of the Old World form, Nyctale teng- 
malmi, a species closely related to Richardson's Owl, 
but a trifle lighter colored, and, like the Lap and 
Hawk Owls, is also likely to occur in Alaska. There 

should be little or no difference in the relative size of 
the eggs of these birds." 

When we step from this instance to naming the 
common eggs of the European Goldcrest (Regulus 
cristatus) as the same thing as the Golden-crowned 
Kinglet of this continent; the Firecrest as the Ruby- 
crowned Kinglet; the common Wren of Europe as 
our." own, etc., then the present writer desires to 
express condolence. 

it may be a matter of taste. If our collectors 
really accept eggs of the European species, admittedly 
(as has been advanced as an argument) at a greatly 
reduced price, and are satisfied, it is their own con- 
cern. It is only where any deception is practiced 
that a protest need be voiced. 

In comparing eggs of our Numenius longirostris from 
Montana, in my collection, I find the European eggs, 
even a picked set sent me, mighty poor imitations 
of the real article. They are Curlew's, and there the 
comparison ends. The present writer cannot approve 
of sending out eggs of the European bird, even though 
the price be low, if labeled "Long- billed Curlew, 

American collectors are obliged to obtain many sets 
of birds on our lists from dealers and others in Europe 
who have correspondents in Iceland, Lapland, etc., 
and there is no intention here of disparaging these 
eggs so long as they come from careful Oologists. As 
to eggs of the Red Phalarope, Crymophilus fulicarius 
(also' known as Gray Phalarope), a well known Oolo- 
gist familiar with sets from Europe writes me : ■ ' Al- 
ways bear in mind that it is risky taking eggs of this 
species either for cash or exchange that are from Ice- 
land. Ninety or more out of a hundred of such sets 
are really only those of the Red-necked Phalarope." 


In this connection some remarks as to methods of 
European Oologists may hot be amiss. Data with 
sets is usually much more meagre, and less point is 
made in Europe than here, probably, in most: cases at 
least, on the question of size of holes in eggs. Choicely 
prepared eggs in this country have a higher value, but 
many collectors do not object to eggs with holes bored 
of fairly "decent" size, and in a large collection one 
is obliged to take many which are not blown with 
"pin point" borings. To take as much pains as pos- 
sible and avoid augur holes, is probably a safe rule to 

The European Oologists make it a rule to mark, upon 
one egg in a set at least, the most important data, as, 
locality, date, and sometimes the collector's name, 
while all eggs, of course, have their individual set 
mark. If the data label should be lost it can thus be 
replaced, which is a decided advantage, and with care 
the egg is not disfigured with marking. A soft pencil 
is sufficient. Many of our collectors favor the Euro- 
pean plan. Mr. C. W. Crandall suggests to me that 
collectors place upon eggs some individual mark. In 
looking over a series of American Bittern he recently 
found four sets all marked "£," naturally creating 
confusion. It is well to affix initals, date, or at least 

the year. "Full" data is very desirable, especialy 
of rare sets, even if you write on the back of the label. 
A photograph of nest will add to its value. 

It may be trite to mention packing, but in shipping 
eggs wrap each one separately in raw cotton (the 
finest quality is not so good) with packing in top and 
bottom (some make little bundles of tissue paper of 
each egg) , and be sure that while not too loosely packed 
there is sufficient "give," for tightly packed egg shells 
will break from concussion incident to mail. With a 
strong box »re-inforced cigar boxes are handy) there 
is comparative safety. Where difference in price is 
small better use" express, marked "Fragile." Very 
large eggs are sometimes wrapped in paper, etc. 

Having devoted so much space to boxing eggs, and 
boxing the oological compass, the main issue — prices 
— is apt to be forgotten. It is about eight years since 
there was issued, in New York City, where I was at 
the time publishing The Nidologist, the first edition of 
this Catalogue. The first edition eliminated many 
tim -worn blunders and fell into others nearly as bad 
(«V e the prices on some very rare waders), but it sup- 
plied a want as the first catalogue of exchange valua- 
tions not issued by a dealer, and is still in use. 

Supply and demand have caused a fluctuation in 
many prices and the need of a second edition was ap- 
parent. In compliance with many requests the task 
was undertaken five or six months ago, and with the 
generous assistance of many discerning Oologists, the 
editor and publisher ventures to believe that in this 
new edition, largely improved, the results are suffis 
cient requital for the labor expended. 

There were over two hundred changes in nomencla- 
ture, additions or corrections to be made to bring 
the A. O. U. list herein .up to date, so that a concep- 
tion may be formed of the labor involved, and excuse 
found for some little delay in publication. "Prices" 
fixed in the ONLY "standard" Catalogue (and the 
gentle reader may draw his own conclusions as to one 
meant), although they represent toilsome hours (sic), 
are not copyrighted. If any publisher should venture 
to take an easv cut by utilizing them in a subsequent 
Catalogue, the compiler humbly expresses the hope 
that such errors as may have naturally crept into this 
work will not be incorporated into a new one. 

The preparation of such a work is not a "snap." 
The scale of relative valuations must be worked out 
with careful consideration of the abundance or rarity 
of a given species, the question of a restricted range, 
demand, supply, European importations, recent ex- 
plorations, and the numerous circumstances which 
must, as far as is possible, be reviewed in arriving at a 
judgment somewhere nearly correct. In this country 
where private collections are almost a necessity in 
many instances for advanced students a "Catalogue," 
while it may always fall short necessarily of perfec- 
tion, is almost indispensible as a guide in the exchange 
of specimens; while, in general, the prices indicated in 
the compendium may be said often to give concretely 
a fair idea of the relative abundance of species — at 
least of such as are readily obtainable. 


Cash prices depend on circumstances, and although 
a cash basis was suggested to me (by two or three 
only, some of them my especial friends it was deemed 
impracticable. The exchange basis is worked out as 
consistently as possible, combining the views of many 
experienced collectors, and the prices, which are rela- 
tive, are aimed to promote as far as pssible equitable 
exchanges, east and west, north and south. The ex- 
change valuation is higher than cash valuation, the 
latter averaging perhaps one-third lower, but it is im- 
possible to make a fixed comparison, as all exchangers 
will agree. A collector who makes a fortunate "buy" 
should be entitled to a margin, and those who import 
eggs (which come at buyers' risk and at his expense 
for expressage) have some claim for consideration. 
This Catalogue aims at fairness to all, and European 
dealers' prices were carefully consulted, as well as the 
figures advanced by importers, in arriving at con- 

The editor believes a fair margin should be allowed 
for increased postage on large eggs, as Murres, Loons, 
Swans, etc., as well as for bulky nests, for in exchanges 
it is the rule that each collector prepays and guaran- 
tees safe delivery. Eggs of great beauty, desired in 
numbers for series, are consistently priced higher, 
although they may not be extremely rare. Perhaps 
a dozen correspondents asked me to raise Osprey's 
eggs to $1.00. vSome kinds, formerly difficult to ob- 
tain, have been taken in colonies and placed on the 
market in quantity, hence the price descends. I may 
mention as an example, White-faced Glossy Ibis. 

With very rare eggs it is unquestionably safer not 
to venture a price, but a tentative valuation is in- 
structive in giving an idea of the rarity of the eggs. 
It is quite probable, however, that collectors will have 
no rush of exchange effers of the very rare species — 
not from reliable collectors, unless some expedition 
may make a rich haul. It is a natural disposition of 
dealers to price very rare species low, for in so doing 
the unsuspecting may be the more ready to part with 
them on occasion, and a substantial advance be real- 
ized at cash sale! At least this is a fair inference 
when eggs which have sold for $10 each in cash are 
priced at an "exchange" value of $4 or $5. 


The "exchange" prices herein given are for perfect, 
average sets. Those of peculiar size or beauty or 
other characters which the English call "varieties," 
may be exchanged at higher prices by mutual agree- 
ment. In England, collectors sometimes pay large 
cash sums for rare "varieties." The egg of the com- 
mon Murre sells for 15 cents up to $5 for a single speci- 
men, the latter figure having been paid by Mr. Massey, 
of Manchester, at a private auction. A pure white 
egg is considered a valuable prize. Here the auction 
scheme has not yet prevailed. Eggs of the common 
Kittiwake and Herring Gull have also brought large 
sums in England for "varieties." 

It will be noted that prices for many eastern species, 
as Red-shouldered Hawk, and many commoner kinds, 


have been raised, and prices east and west equitably 
adjusted. Some of our western species, as Red-bellied 
Hawk, while much in demand for their beauty in 
coloration, are taken in but few favored localities, 
where the collectors prefer to keep them for series, 
while their range is either limited or extended through 
country where there are few collectors. The writer 
finds 339b rare in Northern California — but one set is 
his total take in twenty years. It will be a long time 
before the market is glutted (!) with such sets and 
they deserve a good rating. * 

A number of collectors who take sets of Blue-winged 
Warbler thought the figure should remain $2, while 
numerous others demanded a reduction. A well- 
known Connecticut collector who has about half a 
hundred sets in his series said, "put it $1.50." With 
this we strike a medium. A number urged the ad- 
vance made on Bald Eagle, and there was but one 
correspondent to suggest a reduction on Golden Eagle 
He named an exchange price of $8, instead of $10. 
Others asked for an increase Mr. Jacobs and others, 
wrote, "No one ever thinks of exchanging them for 
$10." There he's wrong, I will myself, and the rate 
remains unchanged. Considering the steady Euro- 
pean demand, variation in marking, etc. (which applies 
likewise to 339 and 337), the price is none too high. 

The writer "owns up" that the contention of many 
eastern men that some of our western forms have 
been rated disproportionately high is correct, and be- 
lieves he has remedied this condition, but at the same 
time a very erroneous opinion prevails in the minds 
of some as to the ease with which rare Warblers' sets, 
etc., may be picked up in the West. I would like to 
take some of these doubters through the high Sierra, 
where five or six sets all told for a week's work (as on 
the Placerville-Tahoe road) is a fair average, including 
Mountain Bluebirds and Western Robins! 

In the great valleys and foothills of California, it is 
true, there are spots where bird life is prolific, but 
they are chiefly of what are called the commoner 
birds. Sets of Hermit Warbler and Western Evening 
Grosbeak from the Sierra sold for $25 and $40 each 
cash. Who has taken them since? And who shall 
say they brought extravagant sums, considering the 
trip necessary. California is a big State, and speaking 
for the west, rich as it is in oological treasures, you 
cannot always walk out in the back yard and pick up 
rare sets. By the way, a correspondent (who prob- 
ably wants a small series) suggested $4 to me as a 
fair value on Hermit Warbler's eggs. 

Prices are omitted on some species so rare as to 
make an exchange valuation almost impossible, as in 
the case of certain waders. At a recent sale in Lon- 
don sets of four eggs each of Pectoral and Bonaparte's 
Sandpipers brought over $40 a set. Four eggs "of 
Grey Plover, taken in Alaska," brought $40. Eggs 
of the Great Auk are occasionally sold at from $1,000 
to $1,600. 

Thirty guineas, or $150, was paid at Steven's auction 
rooms Co vent Garden, in July last, for a fine specimen 
of the egg of JEpyorms maximus, "12 inches in diam- 

Who says eggs of the Great Skua are priced too 
high ? This is from the Yorkshire Post : 

'■ Rector Fined. — At Lerwick on Saturday the Rev. 
A. E. Sorby, of Darfield Rectory, wa? fined £3, or a 
month's imprisonment, for having contravened the 
Wild Bird's Protection order, by taking two eggs of 
the Great Skua and one of a Sea Eagle from places in 
Shetland. The eggs were forfeited." 


In scientific research, and this is particularly true 
of Oology, to become dogmatic in assertions is fatal. 
In the coloration or other characteristics of eggs the 
Oologist is often confronted wifh strange divergences 
from the assumed "types," and if one depended on 
the book descriptions — some of them at least — he 
would be often be bewildered. The variely in colora- 
tion, markings, etc., in eggs of a species cannot be 
summed up at all adequately in a few lines, and such 
descriptions, presumed to sufnco for a student of 
"popular" or spy glass Ornithology, are often more 
apt to be confusing than enlightning When asser- 
tions are made repeatedly m such a work that of eggs, 
yet undiscovered of certain birds, "will not differ'' 
from related species or sub-species, the "limit" seems 
to have been reached. There is much concerning the 
eggs and nesting of even familiar birds which we do 
not yet know, or which has never been recorded, and 
all Oologists of experience will agree that to assume to 
describe birds' eggs which have never yet been found 
is folly of the most reprehensible sort. 

This Catalogue aims to be a true "working basis" 
for students and collectors, and at the same time will 
be found handy, it is hoped, for use as a checking list, 
the large type and broad margins, with its convenient 
size for the pocket, commending it to field naturalists. 
I desire to express appreciation of the kindness of 
my friend, Hon. John Lewis Childs, of Floral Park, 
New York, through whose courtesy the matrices for 
the electrotypes, set up in the best style of the printer's 
art, and with the list corrected to conform to all A. O. U. 
additions and changes to date, were secured for this 
work. Mr. Fred M. Dille, of Denver, has remained 
awake many nights, the writer is sure, thinking up 
ideas and "contraptions" for his valuable contribution 
to this Oological pot-pourri, and I express an indebted- 
ness profound. 

To my numerous other friends and collaborators 
whose names are emblazoned on the title page, I can 
only express a part of the sincere appreciation felt, 
trusting they will give me credit for doing my little 
best to harmonize their ideas on prices. To those 
who either did not have the time or feel the inclina- 
tion to aid me — well, I am sure you see your mistake 
now! With this I beg to remain, yours, quite fre- 
quently, and, Odlogically, 

H. R. T. 
Alameda, Calif., Sept., 1904. 



The asking of Mr. Taylor for a little space in this 
"new edition," wherein I could air some of my views, 
was deliberate on my part; but he at once regained 
the advantage by offering some space for cranks/ if I 
could give him in return a few more "hints and con- 
traptions" for his "Boys." 

It has been so many years since my ' ' folding ladder ' ' 
startled the Birds, that I think it high time to again 
unfold it. It is the best thing to-day, that I have in 
use, and therefore deserving of a second mention. 
Mr. John H. Flanagan, of Providence, R. I., favored 
me with a visit this summer. He is a collector of 
much experience and knows what eastern woods are 
like. At first he did not think the ladder would be 
of as much benefit on the eastern trees as on the west- 
ern, but finally came to my view, which is, that the 
first ten or twelve feet of a tree is the hardest, east or 
west, and that a few stiff climbs early in the day will 
produce more exhaustion than several miles walk. 

You can walk and you can climb, but a half day's 
combination of "walk and climb" will get us all. So 
the weight of the ladder, to carry, is nothing compared 
to the saving of your strength. Ten feet long, it is of 
light material and hinged in the center, the latest 
edition being improved with two straight, sharp spikes, 
attached to the legs at the bottom end and a sliding 
bolt, with catch in the center, to keep it from shutting 
up while in use. 

For getting on top of plum thickets, wild vine 
growths, dead tangles, where there is nothing to climb, 
and for very slender trees or holes in under side of an 
old rotten stump (the West abounds in such condi- 
tions), my little "ladder route" is the only feasible 
one to take. 

In getting our prizes from the nest to ground we 
have all learned it is best not to carry them down 
personally, but to lower with line to the ground or to 
some companion. The "carpenter's chalk line," with 
a snap on end, still answers this purpose best, and for 
taking care of the line a fishing reel will be found most 
desirable. Such a line does not snag in the limbs or 
blow with the wind, and you will recall the device for 
computing the distance — wrappings of black linen 
thread every two feet, with a double wrap every ten 

But the bucket! I never was paid for advertising 
lard "from the tree tops," so I schemed out a little 
collapsing bucket of my own, which can be carried up 
in the pocket. Make a circular bottom of wood, diam- 
eter such as to slide in and out of coat pocket; this is 
about ordinary saucer size. A circular piece of wire, 
same circle as bottom, for the top; and canvas tacked 
to the bottom and stitched to the top wire for the 
side. The handle is also a piece of pliable wire, which 
will drop down flush with half the top rim. The one 
I have m use is five and a half inches wide by four 
inches high, and you will perceive it can be crushed 
up and slipped in the pocket, like one of those patent 


drinking cups; with also a little cotton for nesting, 
all in position. 

From my friend, FlanigaU, I obtained an idea and 
also gave one. He said that my field data arrange- 
ment was the simplest and best he ever saw, and I 
was pleased to get his rubber ball. Many will remem- 
ber our old water-blowing device, ten feet of rubber 
tubing, with an elevated reservoir of water, but " Flani- 
gan's ball" is ahead of that. Go down to your "toy 
emporium" and purchase a white "rubber ball for 
the baby" (or some one else's baby, it doesn't matter 
which) about the size of a large orange, one of the 
dull heavy bouncers; burn a small hole, with a heated 
knitting needle, so as to "cut the lining." Use this 
in connection with a basin l of water, by first filling, 
and when not in use set back in the water, so that it 
will fill automatically. Is it necessary for me to in- 
struct further, by requesting you to use the squirt as 
a blowing force and as a cleanser, or will you prefer 
to play with the tool a little while? 


My field system is simple. I sent to my friend, 
iR. W. Ford, of Bristol, Conn., who, by the way, is 
also an old-time egg boy, and got a rubber stamp, 
making this impression, exact size: ■> 

Name *. 

Set Mark t . . Date '. . . 

No. Eggs Incubation 

Location > 

Nest . . . . . 

For a few years I used this on separate slips of 
paper, but recently have been using a pocket note 
book, size four by seven inches, opening back from 
end, much more convenient than a side opener. This 
note book is a red cover, half morocco, with the re- 
movable slip" filler." T get "fillers" of fifty sheets 
or one hundred pages each and of quadruple ruling; 
using a new "filler" each season, the old one being 
labelled and filed away. 

With the rubber stamp make two impressions on a 
page, mix in a few with but one impression to the 
page, crowding the stamp to the left side, and with 
your extra space for writing coming below the "nest 
line," and along the right margin. 

Begin by marking up the "set mark" spaces in 
your book with ink, from a No. 1 in regular order up 
to 75 or such a matter. Now! mark the eggs from 
your first nest, immediately on removal, with the 
figure 1 and fill up the corresponding blank in the 
book. All eggs of the next set, with a 2 and continue 
through the season. Do not run a separate set of 
numbers on sets of the same variety, thereby having 
more than one set with a 3 or a seven in your lot, but 
keep the field number going up on every additional 
set, regardless of variety. Put nothing on the egg but 
the one figure. 

After the season is over is the time to clean off the 
field number, re-marking those which have been pre- 
pared satisfactorily and which are your substantial 
results; putting on your "system" marks to connect 
with the results of previous years' work — 475 20/7 

766 9/6, or whatever your system is. Your temporary 
field number is of no further use, as far as this set goes, 
and should not appear, only as a reference guide on 
the completed data. They are for one season's use 
only, beginning with your No. 1 again the next year. 

Many who read this have no doubt spoiled their 
chances for good sets of woodpeckers and others from 
holes in trees. by breaking in on an incomplete number, 
and it was through disrespect to the intellect of the 
"screech owl" that I found out that the following 
little piece of woodcraft could be worked successfully. 
Not only on the "screechers," but the "sapsuckers" 
and some of the woodpeckers. Now, I always carry 
a carpenter's key-hole saw, with some of the tip broken 
off. I have it set somewhat coarse and a trine sharper 
than a "safety razor." I mutilate the "door-way" 
by taking out a circular piece, sawed on a bevel, and if 
the number of eggs is not satisfactory, put it back in 
place, with some small brads, gumming up the saw 
cut with bark. 

If some bark can be removed in a large piece, which 
is often the case, make your cut where the replaced 
bark will cover it and tack it in place with brads also. 


What I desired to put particularly to the younger 
collectors was an earnest plea for them to conduct 
their exchanges and correspondence on a more busi- 
ness-like basis. Do you not care for the good esteem 
of your correspondents? and do you not value a good 
reputation? Then it is up to you to pick some of the 
twigs for your nest through these mediums. Pos- 
sibly you think that the difference is of no considera- 
tion; that the chances are you will never see any of 
"these boys," and there is your first mistake. 

A ten or twenty years' correspondence but strength- 
ens your desire to see these fellows and make their 
personal acquaintance, while the effect may be far- 

If you agree with me on these points, let us consider 
a few "ways and means," leading to your ultimate 
gain. In sending out your exchange lists, state pre- 
cisely which sets are of your own personal work and 
which ones you are offering, which came to you other- 
wise; or, better still, give your friends to understand 
in general that your exchange material is personally 
collected unless otherwise noted. 

If it was necessary to make large holes in the prep- 
aration of your specimens, do not fail to mention it 
when such sets are offered. 

Simply crunch every set, of not too high a valuation, 
if it contains specimens imperfect in preparation. 
Help us all to suppress the circulation of these un- 
satisfactory sets, which cause so much ill-feeling and 
disrupt friendships. 

I wish a general understanding could be had to do 
away with the use of the A. O. U. numbers in corres- 

Eondence. Yes! I know it is the standing custom, 
ut how many of us have the table memorized? Bear 
in mind, that not only do you have to hunt out the 
numbers in the first place, but we also have to pufin 


more time in the decipher 

Make matters easy for the next person, instead of 
hard, and you are more likely to obtain prompt and 
satisfactory replies. 

Keep strict account, in regular ledger style, of all 
your exchanges, and be solicitous to settle your debits. 
One is always ready to extend credit to a collector 
provided he keeps accounts, but there is no satisfac- 
tion in dealing with those who do not. 

Much inexperience is still manifest in the packing 
and shipment of specimens. Large eggs are not 
strong in proportion to their size, and big ones take 
big room. It is the concussion on the box that does 
the mischief, if they are not given lots of room, with 
elasticity, father than a snug fit. 

I have always thought that I took more pains in 
fixing my boxes than many did and for that reason 
have made it a rule to send out first, if possible. In 
that case, your well-fortified boxes will generally be 
returned with the exchange. 

The minimum on express charges is about 25 cents. 

If the postage comes over 15 cents, use the express; 
for you thereby can mark your box "Fragile" and 
have it respected. 

I have often made use of the registered mail, to 
procure more careful handling, for on inquiry I learned 
that the registered mail was not thrown about as 
much nor as heavily as the common sacks. 

But keep your boxes out of the way during the 
"holiday rush." There is no money in broken eggs, 
and "a penny in time saves nine." 

Weill my space is gone; but one more suggestion: 
If any of you should happen this way, do not fail to 
stop off and look me up. We will "unfold" that, 
ladder, or if the same is not "in season," we can "do 
a few" for the Tag.

etc., Floral Park, N.Y. Has private museum, including 
1100 species of N.A. birds' eggs in full sets, (600 nests 
with sets) and 1200 species of North American birds mount- 
ed, with many fine groups showing old and young, and 
different phases of plumage. Mr. Childs is also interest- 
ed in certain other objects of natural history, as mounted 
mammals, fish, reptiles, insects, minerals and shells, 
which are included in his extensive North American col- 
lections. He is the publisher of the Warbler and the 
Mayflower, and while birds and eggs are his particular 
hobby, the publisher of this Catalogue hopes he is violat- 
ing no confidence in adding that he is a world known au- 
thority on floriculture, and has been widely known for 
many years as having the most extensive floral gardens, 
and the largest business as a florist in the world. From 
flowers to birds is a natural step, and Mr. Childs is an 
enthusiastic Ornithologist, and Oologist. He does not 
collect sets in large series, but is always desirous of ob- 
taining the best examples of any species, as to coloration 
and marking or large number of eggs to a set, his aim be- 
ing to have the best representation possible of everv known 
bird's egg in the A.O.U. list.

The Oologist 

A Monthly Publication Devoted to 


The Oologist is the oldest, cheapest, and most popular 
"Bird" publication in America, and while of special inter- 
est to the "Bird man'' it is recognized by up-to-date 
Teachers, Scientists, Naturalists and Curiosity Collectors 
of sufficient interest to be worthy their support. 

During the past twenty years (The Oologist's age) many 
superior Natural History publications have dropped by 
the way. THE OOLOGIST, however, is still issued each 
month and a sample copy can always be obtained by 
a ddressing a postal card to its publisher, or you can 
secure it an entire year, with a 25 cent." "Exchange
